• Welcome to Tumwater Hill Elementary, home of the Hawks!  


         Tumwater Hill Elementary opened in 1990.  Recently we have been through an extensive remodel to not only update our safety and security but also to add current technology that enhances  our students' learning experiences. The Mission of the Tumwater School District is “Continuous Student Learning in a Caring, Engaging Environment”.  The team here at Tumwater Hill work diligently to meet this mission every day. Our students’ best interest is our priority. 

         Our school is focused on creating a positive climate for students.  Our PBIS (Positive Behavior Instructional Systems) help the students and staff keep three key words at the front of their thinking… Respectful, Responsible, & Safe!  Students can earn Hawkeye’s to be rewarded for demonstrating this focus throughout the school. We also celebrate students through monthly character trait recognition and attendance achievements. 

         We know that every school day is important, filled with lots of information.  Please remember to schedule appointments outside of school hours as much as possible.  Late arrivals and early pickups disrupt your students’ learning. Every minute counts and we don’t want them to miss out!  Read to or with your student for at least 20 minutes a day to help reinforce those reading skills they have been learning in their classes.  You can also check out our school website, clicking on the webapps icon and then on the Elementary Resources button to access supports for your student(s) at home.  

         It is going to be a fun filled year of learning!


    All my best,
